(I don’t usually reblog my Mad Genius Club posts here but this morning I have to. Yesterday, Origins Gaming Fair took the unbelievable step of revoking Larry Correia’s invitation to be literary guest of honor at their con. Why? Because a few special folks objected and, well, lied about him. Here’s what I had to say about it.)
Almost a month to the day when it was announced John Ringo would NOT be a Guest of Honor at ConCarolinas, Origins Gaming Fair decided it wanted to play too. First it announced Larry Correia would be its literary guest of honor. Then, very shortly after that, the invitation was revoked. All signs indicate the decision was made by one man, John Ward. It didn’t take long for the tidal wave of reaction to set in and, since then, Origins has done everything wrong in how it has handled the situation.
In fact, we very well may be watching the slow suicide of a con that decided to follow the saying, “Get woke, go broke.”
